0.33 l bottle (11.9 %), thanks hanniku! Almost opaque dark reddish brown color. Thick toffeish and nutty aroma with almonds, dried fruits, burnt sugar and tar. Bittersweet toffeish and raisiny taste with smoky and tarry whisky. Finish is dominated by islay type whisky with iodine and peat smoke. Full body. Good sipper, good replacement for a after lunch whisky.
